Laura. Laura. Laura. Why are you wasting your talents on these dull and uninteresting topics? These "stories" are the stuff of Susan Reimer. In one word. Meaningless. Peyser. Malkin. Ingram. Yes, and God forbid Coulter. I'm not suggesting you go conservative, but you need to rant. I known it's there. Some of your past articles have proven that. Spew that fire in the belly and give your readers a journalistic roller coaster ride.

Actually, Oprah Winfrey has already given a commencement address at Goucher - in 1981. At the time, she was a local talk show host on Baltimore's "People Are Talking." It was a good address, including a rendition (in character) of part of Soujourner Truth's "Ain't I A Woman" speech. Ironically, I had the impression that the college powers-that-be were less than enthused about the choice of speaker. I guess we of the Class of '81 could see the future a little clearer than they could.
